I Take Photos: A Journey Through Insta Success

When Tobi Shinobi and Ron Timehin started using photo sharing app, Instagram in 2012, they couldn't have imagined it would completely reshape their lives. They adopted new technologies at the right time, and worked hard at developing their individual accounts. Fast forward to today and they have swapped their day jobs as a lawyer and a touring musician for their new shared passion as photographers. They are favourites in the London space on Instagram, boasting thousands of followers and millions of likes. Not only has their creative partnership flourished, so too has their success online and offline. Their message to others is simple: anyone can take photos.

Director's Statement: I love the work of both Tobi and Ron; their photos are striking and captivating. Through this documentary, I wanted to shine a light on the people behind the camera and explore their journey from amateur Instagrammers to successful professional photographers. I wanted to tell a story that would inspire people, no matter where you are in life, to try somthing new and follow your passion.
